Cody & Marty Scurll & Hangman Page vs Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi & Chase Owens
February 23, 2018
Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW Honor Rising (Day 1)
Fantastic match leaving little doubt that if they teamed regularly, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi (the Golden Lovers) would be the best tag team in the business. They were so awesome here and the crowd was into all their spots. Hangman Page also stood out to me and continues to improve month by month. Chase Owens kept up with them, and Cody is better than ever when it comes to persona and psychology. Marty Scurll’s role was to feel conflicted about doing too much offense on Omega, and that played into the match storyline. Really good stuff.
